Semi-Annual Rule-Making Agenda
(July - December 2018)
The department of transportation (WSDOT) prepares a semi-annual rule-making agenda in January and July each year to inform the public of expected upcoming rule changes. Pursuant to RCW 34.05.314, the agenda is published in the Washington State Register.

WSDOT is responsible for initiating rule making to implement new state laws, meet federal requirements, and to meet unforeseen circumstances. Because of this variability, this agenda is prepared for information purposes only and any dates noted herein are planning estimates that are subject to change. Additional rule making can occur in addition to what is listed on this agenda.
This agenda does not constitute a rule or rule-making action. Any errors or omissions in this agenda do not affect the actual rules or rule making notices filed with the office of the code reviser and published in the Washington State Register.
